You have to look carefully to find the discrete doorway and staircase leading down into the latest addition to Bondi Junction’s bar scene, Spring Street Social, which opened its doors in September this year and was followed in November by the opening of its sister venue, the live music and arts space, JAM Gallery.
When it comes to new restaurants, the Sydney market can be brutal. And while many sink, others appear to float along effortlessly. Enter Three Blue Ducks. Opened by a group of local surfers in 2010, this humble beachside cafe has gone on to become one of Sydney’s hottest places to eat. In just two years, it’s received glowing reviews, been featured on television series, taken over the pizza place next door, extended its trading hours into the evening, and even opened a spin-off in Falls Creek, Victoria.
The other night, we were invited to the VIP launch of Queenie’s Jamaican Inspired Grill and Bar at Level 1 of the revamped Forresters hotel in Surry Hills. This pumping little nook adds yet another string to the bow of young pub moguls, James Miller and Jaime Wirth, who have had great success in transforming other local venues, such as The Norfolk and The Carrington.
One of Sydney’s hottest live music venues got a little bit cooler last month with the opening of The Dip, a restaurant that offers a rad new take on the classic American diner. The new food stop is right at home inside the nightclub Goodgod thanks to the influence of one of its co-founders, Sydney DJ Sleater Brockman (aka Andrew Levins), who’s just as skilled at flipping burgers as he is at spinning tunes.
